NYer: Isn't that awful? Gawd, the sheer amount of $$ !!

I watched Faux News once, just to be fair. I could stand only a few minutes before I knew it was garbage. Just a few minutes, you say? One need not drink the entire bottle of beer to know it has gone skunky.

Too many people confuse socialism with communism. Also, many people who knee-jerk lose their sh*t upon hearing or reading the word "socialism" don't know how much they benefit from socialism every day. Take away socialism, and these fools would wither.

Many more, Edie!!
MMC: Glad to see that this is out in the open!  While I do not see it happening, their license needs to b pulled.  Carlson is bleeding sponsors; drip, drip, drip.
New Yorker: Is this not how DeVos got to be where she is?
'Toon: Just when I thought I'd never have to see his smarmy face again!

MM:  Good for the protesters.  Faux Noise needs to go away.

PPC:  This is an excellent and educational video.  Shared.

Happy Birthday Edie. 🎂🎁

Happy belated birthday, TC. Hope your 32nd 39th was pleasant.

I’ve been hanging with my newest grandkid - his parents wanted to check out my ability to change diapers, sterilize bottles, and soothe unremitting sobs. I passed with flying colors.

I’d bet Cruella deVos was shocked that the wealthy parents scamming the university admissions process were arrested. Isn’t that how one is supposed to gain admission? That’s how she got to be secretary of the DoE.

While Tucker Carlson has had almost a 40% drop in advertisers, he’s ratings gold for Faux Newz. Now he’s spewing more hateful things about the mosques massacres in NZ. The Daily Beast notes: “Repeating his claim that the political left wants to use the massacre to silence dissent, Carlson read off a full quote from the shooter’s manifesto that explained why he chose firearms.”

4:06 Unappetizing stuff of nightmares.

MM: Very worthwhile protest aimed at the right people: Faux News advertisers. If they had any sense of what was going on in the street before the closed doors of their emergency meeting (a bad sign in itself) they will have realized that some responsibility for how much Faux News is able to brainwash people with fake news and lies, lies with them. Of course, that is exactly how some advertisers want it, but a number of them must realize that it rubs off badly on them too.

PP: Glad someone is taking the trouble to first learn from his own mistake and then takes the trouble to explain to Americans who may make the same mistake, what socialism really is. Well, Democratic Socialism to be precise. Sad that”, although CNN is Drumpf’s “enemy number one, they haven’t forgotten their old tricks of disinformation.

TNY: I’m sure Betsy DeVos would like us to mail her the answer to the questions, so she can tell her family and friends how much they can expect to put aside to put their kids through college.

I hope you had a wonderful birthday, Edie!

Puzzle — 4:12 Would someone give Trump a big bouquet of this precious plant!

Media Matters — I hope Faux Noise sinks faster than the Titanic. Perhaps Trump should be charged with collusion . . .with Faux Noise!

Progressive Politics — I have said it before — too many people conflate socialism with communism. Further, Republicans bandy the word ‘socialism’ about as if it is a dirty word. It is not! As to this presentation, I have to review it several times as I find him difficult to follow, especially when I am very tired.

The New Yorker — I was thinking the same thing Mitch. One rises to the height of one’s incompetence and DeVos is more than just a little high!

Cartoon — I do remember that! What an idiot!

Happy Birthday Edie!!!

Happy Ides of March! Julius Caesar did not think it such a happy day.

Resist, Persist, Remove!!!

Lock HIM up!!!

Silence is Consent!!!
